The new box is I think sourced only from the 16 track masters. It's entirely likely that a 2 track was running most of the time too. One might assume the band possesses both but maybe not. May be that 2 track sdbd is in private hands, or maybe they didn't want to mix sources on the box for certain sound quality reasons.

Rhino releases are supposed to be done only with superior quality multi track masters and not live to 2 track stereo mixes that cannot be remixed. You'd think for completeness they'd allow some minor use of two track sources here and there but apparently not.

and on that concluding note I'm going for a kip, only to re-awake on the release of the next megga-box set, ready to renew battle all ship-shape & Bristol fashion (that's Bristol UK, not Bristol US).

They used the 2 track reels to cover the flips.

They did it for the Fillmore West 1969: The Complete Recordings. There were several patches in the 16 track from the 2-track tapes. I don't see why they shouldn't have done it with these except, like you said, if they didn't have access to them.
